Fall 2006: The first student-led course on playing the carillon is introduced. “Learning to Play the Sather Tower Carillon” remains a popular part of the Democratic Education at Cal (DeCal) program. For University Carillonist Jeff Davis, training a new generation of carillonists has been a top priority, along with composing. Currently, Davis teaches 15 to20 students each semester, and 10 to15 more students are in the DeCal classes. His teaching program is the most extensive at a U.S. university with a bell tower.
